Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Harvest

When some farming friends invited us to watch them harvest soy beans, we jumped at the opportunity. It was a first for all of us, and the C. family didn't just let us watch them cut the beans, they let the us take turns riding in the combine, and playing in the grain truck. (The sun was glaring in their eyes in the picture above, so it was hard for them to look at the camera.)


For suburbanites like us, this was a HUGE experience. My kids could scarcely believe that they actually got to climb up in the trailer with the grain!


Here's a shot of Toby and me squeezed into the buddy seat of the combine cab. All the Edwards kids agreed in the car on the drive home that Mr. C is "very nice." Toby was so excited in his first combine ride (he actually got to go twice), that he could barely speak.


You can see by Toby's concentrating expression (below), that he is absolutely thrilled to be sitting in the driver's seat of a big rig.


Mrs. C helped me hoist Lydia up into the grain truck (don't worry! I was there with her!) and she had an amazing time playing in the beans.




Thank you so much, Brandon and Gavin, for sharing your family's fun with us for an afternoon!
